Accessibility and your needs
The camp aims to be accessible to all, but if you have any particular questions relating to accessibility then please do contact us at accessrtp[at]gmail.com.
Didcot train station has lifts or ramps to all platforms. Ramps from trains are also available, and the ticket office and exit are step free. Wheelchair accessible taxis can be booked via Pryors Taxis (01235 812345) but they require 24/48hrs notice as they only have two. If you don’t need a wheelchair accessible taxi why not go with Go Green Taxis (01235 811 100), a local firm with a fleet of hybrid electric vehicles?
We aim to make the camp fully accessible for wheelchair users. If you use a battery-powered wheelchair or mobility scooter, send us a quick email (accessrtp[at]gmail.com) to tell us what Amp Hour rating it is and how many times a day you will want to charge it. You will also need to bring your own battery charger if possible.
Many individuals are currently hard at work to ensure that on Friday 29th May, a space in near Didcot Powerstation, Oxfordshire will be transformed into a safe and accessible temporary community where all can meet likeminded people, discuss the issues, and prepare for action. Once there, it will be up to everyone who attends to get stuck in and help sustain the camp; you don’t need to bring any skills, just bring your energy and enthusiasm!
A range of resources for participants to make use of and contribute towards will be available:
The Welcome Tent: providing you with a smile, camp booklet, and the knowledge of where to go. The welcome tent will also be the go-to point for any queries that may pop up.
Kitchens: preparing delicious and energising vegan meals throughout the camp’s duration. You don’t need to bring your own food; just come ready to chop some vegetables and wash up! We are asking for £5 voluntary donation per day (if you have it) for food (3 meals).
The Kids’ Space: activities and adventures to ensure our youngest participants are able to make the most of their time at the camp (and so are their parents or carers).
Legal Support: on hand to offer legal advice prior to the action, arrest support during the action, and also to ensure all police activity is comprehensively monitored.
Tranquillity: dealing with any conflicts that may arise across the site and supporting everyone in sticking to the safer spaces policy.
Medics: providing first aid if required.
